Female suicide bomber wounds 7 U.S. soldiers
Female suicide bomber wounds 7 U.S. soldiers

BAGHDAD A woman wearing an explosives belt blew herself up near an American patrol northeast of Baghdad a rare female suicide bombing that wounded seven U.S. troops and five Iraqis, the U.S. military said Wednesday.

But tensions and security concerns remained in Baghdad. American troops fired on a minibus carrying bank employees on their way to work on Tuesday after the vehicle tried to go through a roadblock, killing at least two people on board.

And on Wednesday, Iraqi lawmakers briefly boycotted the start of a legislative session, demanding that U.S. forces ease checkpoint searches as they try to enter the fortified Green Zone, where the parliament building is located.

Firyad Rawndouzi, spokesman for the Kurdish bloc, said the boycott came in response to the insulting behavior of the American soldiers toward parliament members as they tried to reach the building.

The U.S. military says attacks across Iraq have fallen to their lowest level since February 2006, attributing this partly to a surge of nearly 30,000 troops earlier this year.

A statement said the Diyala attack happened Tuesday near the provincial capital, Baqubah, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad, when the woman detonated her explosives belt.
